What Really Happened To Jeff Foxworthy?


Back in the ’90s, there weren’t many comedians
quite as big as Jeff Foxworthy. His relatable humor about being a regular
guy from the South endeared him to millions…and so did his extremely popular “you might be
a redneck” jokes. “My definition of redneck, it is a glorious
absence of sophistication.” Foxworthy’s albums sold so well that he became
the most successful comedy recording artist of all time. He also starred in his own network sitcom,
hosted Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? and headlined the Blue Collar Comedy Tour
with Bill Engvall, Larry the Cable Guy, and Ron White. Today, Foxworthy isn’t the white-hot king
of comedy he once was, but he’s still got a huge following and keeps very busy. Here’s what he’s been up to lately. Becoming a salesman Fans might not see Foxworthy’s shows or stand-up
specials while flipping through the channels as much as they used to, but they can still
catch a glimpse of him on TV. Since 2015, Foxworthy has been the face and
voice of the Golden Corral buffet chain. He’s also made ads for Purina deer chow and
the iScope, an iPhone attachment that allows hunters to take videos of whatever they see
through their gun’s sight. Most of these products fit into his down home
aesthetic, and he’s also got his own marketplace in play as well. In 2011, he also started his own sports equipment
company called Foxworthy Outdoors.The company sells a wide array of gear, including Jeff
Foxworthy Beef Jerky and “Redneck”-themed T-shirts of course. The storefront is also an umbrella under which
Foxworthy produces his series Inside & Out. But he’s not just in the business of selling
stuff these days. Turning to philanthropy For a guy who positioned himself as such a
salt-of-the-earth type of person, it’s only natural that he should put his money where
his mouth is. So, Foxworthy has made good use of his fame
and fortune over the years by investing in several charitable endeavors. It starts at home, as Foxworthy Outdoors helps
fund hunting trips on Foxworthy’s land preserve for wounded soldiers and children with life-threatening
illnesses. Plus, in 2012, he granted a local land trust
a conservation easement over 1000 acres of his property in Georgia to protect the property
from construction. And for more than a decade, the comedian and
his family have worked with a humanitarian aid organization called Compassion International,
even traveling to Rwanda to help in and around the organization’s development center. Another cause Foxworthy goes out of his way
to support is Cure Childhood Cancer, an organization based near his home in Atlanta. And for locals around his hometown, he’s been
known to pick up the tab on a grocery bill when things got tight, too. Continuing his career While it might seem like Jeff Foxworthy has
disappeared from the spotlight, he’s still very busy. Logging all those hours on the stage and on
TV made Foxworthy’s voice as recognizable as his face and name, so in recent years,
he’s lent his high-pitched drawl to a bunch of animated projects, including The Smurfs,
Hatched, Ozzy, and Bunyan and Babe. “Well, I’ll be smurfed.” And in 2013, CMT aired 13 episodes of Bounty
Hunters, an animated sitcom about a small-town bail bonds business starring Foxworthy alongside
his old Blue Collar Comedy Tour-mates. Plus, after hosting Are You Smarter than a
Fifth Grader? for five seasons, Jeff Foxworthy continued to frequent the reality competition
circuit as well. He appeared in in two episodes of ABC’s Shark
Tank and headlined the American adaptation of Britain’s The Great British Bake Off for
a single season at CBS. He also hosted The American Bible Challenge,
which tested people’s familiarity with the titular book. Meanwhile, his stand-up career is still ticking
along strong, too. Foxworthy continues to tour the nation with
his signature phrases, playing a number of dates each year at fairs, comedy clubs, and
casinos. And in 2017, he co-headlined Jeff & Larry’s
Backyard BBQ tour with Larry the Cable Guy. The pair also teamed up to make a special
for Netflix called We’ve Been Thinking, wherein he announced that he might have a new career
path altogether in mind. “Well, I haven’t decided if I’m running for
President or not yet…” In other words, we haven’t heard the last
of Jeff Foxworthy just yet. Thanks for watching! Click the Looper icon to subscribe to our

    Why don't y'all ever do any videos about celebrities who have actually quit acting and have not been seen in several years, instead you focus on people that are still currently working in the industry, are on television or commercials. I'd like to see people that were once real famous and are no longer around.

    Jeff Foxworthy is what a conservative looks like. The rhetoric the left uses to brag on themselves is replaced by actually MAKING A DIFFERENCE in people's lives. He uses his own money in addition to his fame to HELP people. He realised long ago that words, the liberals biggest tool are worthless. He replaces those words with action, just like most conservatives.

    Yes indeed, Jeff Foxworthy is a true American Patriot, of whom brought such laughter to most of us, but, it really puzzles me that people didn't like him? Obviously, some don't have much of a sense of humor, unless they're listening to Whoopie Goldberg, Rosie O'Donnell, Kathy Griffin, et al.

    I think he pushes himself a bit hard. I was coming home from a wedding in St. Louis and just happened to be on the train back to Baggage Claim, at Hartsfield / Jackson (Atlanta Airport) with him. He was looking rather raw, with a cast on his arm. Not very approachable that day. Which is far from his regular demeanor. He was lickity split up the escalator and talking to the man at the desk at the top. Who I assume is some type of Celebrity, VIP concierge at baggage claim. Perhaps asking that his car be pulled around. I wish him well and hope his arm heals quickly.
